Rafael dos Anjos vs Tony Ferguson staredown video from UFC Mexico City media day

Former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos is set to face top contender Tony Ferguson in the main event of UFC Fight Night 98 on FOX Sports 1, also serving as The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Latin America 3" Finale, on Nov. 5, 2016, in Mexico City, Mexico.

The pair came face-to-face earlier today at the UFC media day event on location, as did women's bantamweight standouts Alexa Grasso and Heather Jo Clark.

Dos Anjos (25-8) is fresh off a first-round knockout loss to Eddie Alvarez, which saw the former champion cough up his 155-pound strap to the ex-Bellator MMA kingpin in Las Vegas, Nevada. The loss -- which snapped a five-fight win streak -- was his first in two years.

As for Ferguson (21-3), he's been on a roll as of late, winning eight straight dating all the way back to 2013. Most recently,"El Cucuy" survived several scares against Octagon-newcomer Lando Vannata at UFC Fight Night 91 to score a second-round victory.
